8 cool AF things you can do with Allo (Google’s new msg app)

While Google dominates the search engine world (80%) and videos (YouTube), it has yet to come up with its own social media platform that can rival the likes of Facebook or a messaging app, like Whatsapp. Google Allo is their answer. But what differentiates Allo from other messaging apps is the Google assistant and sloth and llama stickerpacks. Here are 8 cool AF things you can do with Allo.

1.GET THE WEATHER: get the weather delivered to Allo everyday at a certain time. Want to know what the weekend weather has in store? Google Assistant has got you covered. It even tells you if you need to pack sunscreen.
